EM Bokashi Discounts Apply

This system is also a great way to reduce your household kitchen scraps. It works differently than a worm farm as it ‘ferments’ or ‘pickles’ the food scraps in a bucket system. A $15 discount applies to this system.

For more information see our Guide to EM Bokashi Composting

Worm farming is also a successful way to reduce organic waste and produce great compost for your garden.
